And just when everything was going so well!
I've had a dodgy shoulder since I injured it in the gym seventeen years ago (believe it or not I used to be a fitness freak with a six pack & pecks). Last week it went again and my Doctor thinks I've torn the ligaments. Now I'm waiting for physopherapy and a scan.
Fingers crossed I seem to be recovering much faster than last time and have regained a fair bit of movement in my arm. My shoulder has improved at such a remarkable speed it makes me feel like a fraud, but I'm not complaining. I had a week where I couldn't paint and that was quite enough!
I thought I'd take the opportunity to catch up on my postings so here are some pics of the first two plaguebearers to be completed. I'd made a good start on number three before my shoulder stopped me from painting and there are a couple more at the early prep stage. I need to sort out a hero, musician and standard bearer but my ideas are coming together so they are (sort of) in hand. I've a few bits & bobs on order for the base and a good supply of heather roots picked up in Cyprus this summer so my plans for a corrupted forest setting are also coming together.
I'm very pleased with how these are turning out but I've been painting Nurgle minis for a year now and the novelty is wearing a bit thin! I've decided to take a bit of a break from the plague bearers before I become sick of the sight of them. I'm going to work on something completely different for a while (although it will be green). Then I can return to 'project nurgle' with renewed enthusiasm.
